Concepts is a Boston shop that specializes in exclusive collaborations and limited edition merchandise with designer brands. Earlier this year, Concepts released their Nike SB “Lobster” Dunk sneaker to celebrate the seafood heritage of New England. This red-ish shoe was designed to resemble a lobster - complete with a blue lobster claw rubber band.

Implications - Sneaker companies continue to come out with inspiring and extremely outrageous designs. While designer, rock star and sports-inspired shoes are commonplace, there are even more extravagant designs inspired by unusual oddities. Most of the population will respond to celebrity-endorsed shoes because they are unique; however, truly bizarre designs will cater to true sneaker heads who will embrace shoes of any kind.
